Why this is important

A recent email sent by Avaaz to its Members asked whether an existing and on-going Avaaz-based petition in support of a person's lawful plea for clemency against an 8-month jail sentence was somehow "offensive, inflammatory or otherwise objectionable".

See context here -

According to many of the Readers' Comments in response to a single news article reporting this action by Avaaz, there is tremendous public support for the original petition to remain online, active and intact - at https://secure.avaaz.org/en/petition/Grant_Peter_Sundes_of_The_Pirate_Bay_plea_for_pardon/

The news article and all Readers' Comments may be viewed at TorrentFreak here -

Consequently, it's important to know whether or not Avaaz has acted in good faith in asking whether or not the petition to support Mr Sunde was acceptable.
